Heath Kilgore
Age: 16
Occupation: Student, Library Volunteer

The younger brother by three years of Ruby, Heath is every bit her equal in terms of bookwormery, but has a less abrasive personality and has generally been better at making friends. He is currently his sister’s “inside man” at the public library, since Ruby was banned following The Incident.

Heath is obsessed with turning trivia into action, so he is constantly tinkering with various things, from mechanics to chemistry. This has led to a serious of very dubious “Heath Potions” as well as extremely questionable modifications to game consoles and other consumer electronics. Heath has been able to turn this into a rather profitable side business, and his access to books and unlimited high-speed internet via the library make him a sought-after sage when it comes to modding things that teenagers are interested in.

Trivia: While Heath makes some money modding game consoles, the biggest score he made was for the city police. They paid him $100 to fabricate a connector to connect their new digital radios to their old squad cars. Rumor has it that, in addition to the hundo, Heath was given a Monopoly ‘get out of jail free’ card by the chief.
